Re: Fire up a backup with VBA code in Excel

Another way - This backup is triggered from an Excel file. When away from home, I send the most recent Excel file to my notebook. Each computer has FBackup installed, and it didn't take me long to realize that having the path in the Excel VBA file wasn't going to work because each computer has it's ...

Re: Fire up a backup with VBA code in Excel

If anyone is interested, here is the VBA code to run the backup (pretty easy): Dim Backup Dim BakcupPath BackupPath = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Softland\FBackup 8\bSchedStarter.exe" _ & " /HIDE /R" _ & " {4A824D26-0A22-41D0-AD81-74A36FBDE6FE}" _ & " -PRIO...

Fire up a backup with VBA code in Excel

I have an FBackup job running every two hours to backup changes to an Excel file to my Goggle Drive that I may change a few times during the day. It occurred to me that it would be more efficient to automatically backup the file when I save the Excel file. I'm sure there's a way to do this but I'm h...

Easy way to turn FBackup on and off?

I only need to run FBackup for a few files on my notebook when I'm away for a few days. Is there an easy way to turn it on and off? The backup I'm running is set to run every 2 hours. I guess I could disable it in startup. Any other ideas?

Re: Fbackup 5.0.300 Causing Errors

I just installed .307, and I didn't get the violation error at the end of the installation either.
Due to another project that is open at the moment, I won't be able to see how it reboots until later today.

Re: Fbackup 5.0.300 Causing Errors

No, 304 did not fix it. I got the Btray error at the end of the installation. I only run FBackup manually once a month, so I'm assuming that if I Stop and Disable the FBackup process from the service list, it might fix the problem and work for me. If they don't fix it by the end of the month, I'll g...

Fbackup 5.0.300 Causing Errors

I updated to 5.0.300 a few days ago. I later noticed I had a cascade of 4 of these error windows. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v250/JeffLeites/MyWebPhotos/FBACKUP.jpg I didn't know what caused it, so I just closed them. The next day when the computer was booted up, the error message came right ...

What is the the .fkc file?
